"We have been to this restaurant many times and have taken many of our family members there. The favorite for us was the table side pulling of the mozzarella- the last time we went we found that "new owners" had changed the menu and that is no longer an option for this restaurant. We are very disappointed! Not only because that was quite entertaining, but they offered many condiments to go with the mozzarella. Now you must order everything separately. They also did not have a wine that we favor and had changed it to another."

The freshest sushi and sashimi are carefully handpicked by region and seasonality. House infused shochus, premium sake, and a large variety of wine, liquor, and beer from around the world are available.

"We enjoy Chicago and all that it has to offer. We picked this restaurant because of the high end Asian offerings. We discovered when we got there that they offered a "sampler menu" and we got very excited because we love this way of discovering a new restaurant. The food was very good but the portions were normal size portions. I quickly realized the difference between a "tasting menu" and a " sampler menu". It was a huge amount of food! I suppose if you are not opposed to taking left-overs, it would be a great idea!"

"We have been to upscale MexicaN RESTAURANTS BEFORE AND WE WERE NOT DISAPPOINTED. fIRST WE HAD A COCKTAIL AT THE BAR AND IT WAS VERY GOOD. tHEY USED A SPICED SALT FOR THE RIM OF THE DRINKS AND IT WAS YUMMY. They also served us a fried chees snack- very nice. We then went to our table- the food was very good. I think my major complaint was that the service was good but they kept trying to rush you to order and eat even though the restaurant was basically empty. It took an experienced diner to keep them from rushing you. I like to enjoy my dining experience and often eating out in a nice restaurant is our entertainment for the evening, so I don't like to be rushed. All in all, the food was very good."

S3, where sun, surf and sand uniquely fuse with steak, seafood and sushi for a perfect combination of island atmosphere and globally-influenced, sea-inspired fare.<br />A wood burning grill lights up the place and sets fire to the menu offering Grilled Octopus, Skirt Steak, Jerk Chicken Skewers, Shrimp Toast and more. Let your eyes do the ordering, via an expansive raw bar featuring fresh-caught delights like Tiradito Wahoo and Yellowtail, Snapper or snack plates like a Trio of Dips (whipped feta, chickpea, and roasted eggplants) or Goat Cheese Cakes. A moderately priced menu serves up a variety of small plates

"The menu at S3had many choices for us and we always enjoy a menu that presents us with reasons to come back! The food selections were varied and since we enjoy tapas, we had many choices. The wine was very good and I have been a fan of their signature cocktails for a while now. We really enjoyed our dinner and will definitely be back."

Jean-Georges opened in 1997 to critical acclaim. The jewel of Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s empire, the restaurant offers the very best in fine dining. Consistently awarded four stars by the New York Times and three Michelin stars, Jean-Georges presents exquisitely crafted dishes blending French, American, and Asian influences. Chef Jean-Georges is a master at maintaining the essence of ingredients while using them inventively to produce the best flavor. Jean-Georges’ chic and intimate dining room was redesigned by Thomas Juul-Hansen, with striking lighting by L’Observatoire. Impeccable service, tableside preparations, and floor-to-ceiling windows with stunning views of Central Park and Columbus Circle all contribute to an unforgettable dining experience. Jean-Georges offers a three-course prix-fixe menu and two six-course tasting menus: a traditional tasting of the chef’s signature dishes, and a seasonal tasting featuring fresh market ingredients.

"Our experience at jean George's was exceptional! The service was the best I have ever experienced, and the food was amazing. We had the summer tasting menu and the dishes were very tasty with wonderful presentations. The wait staff was very attentive and they explained everything we were eating and all answered many questions that I had about preparation and ingredients. I just cannot say enough about this wonderful restaurant. It is worth every penny!!!"

"Fez was very good for Mediterranean dining. Their plate of dips- hummus, baba ganoush, etc- was very good. We mostly ate appetizers and small plates of food, and it was very good. The service was great- the waiters were very attentive. We will go back again"
